Made in Ireland: Sudocrem set to conquer the world!

This post series, Made in Ireland, is dedicated to some of the best Irish beauty and skincare brands around. Check out the previous posts in the series here, and here.

Today’s featured product is much beloved here in Ireland and is slowly but surely building up a cult following abroad. Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream has been around for almost 80 years and, while originally developed to treat the sore skin caused by nappy rash, it’s probably best known on these shores as a teenage spot cream!

The thick, white cream can also be used for a myriad of ailments including cuts and grazes, sunburn, minor burns and eczema, as well as the now infamous Sudomasque.

It’s available in the traditional grey tub (€2.23 for 60g) or in a new, fancypants tube, which is €2.15 for 30g.  And if this Daily Mail article is to be believed, it’s flying off the shelves:  they report a massive 150 per cent rise in the sale of the cream, since February last year!

Will you be snapping up some Sudocrem?
